Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is one of the most common infections in the world, affecting approximately 50% of the world’s population and 36% of the U.S. population, with a higher prevalence in Blacks, Hispanics, and those of lower socioeconomic status. Most patients are asymptomatic, but H. pylori is the major cause of gastritis and peptic ulcer disease, and it is a risk factor for duodenal ulcers and gastric cancer. H. pylori may be diagnosed by endoscopy or noninvasive testing, including urea breath testing, stool antigen assay, or H. pylori serology.
